First Bin Laden Gets Killed; Now Bristol Palin Gets Weird New Life

May 10, 2011


First the shock:  Bin Laden is killed.  Wait a couple of beats in the news cycle and then launch headline: Bristol Palin Gets New Reality Show. Did the planet rock? I don’t know about the rest of America but the glitter is gone from any reality surrounding the Palins.  The truth is, there is no […]

France is not French Anymore. Riot Police Can No Longer Have Wine/Beer With Meals

April 22, 2011


Mon Dieu!  Quelle horreux!   The riot police in France may be banned from drinking wine or beer for meals while on duty.   Yes, you heard me. BANNED.  The French drink wine at ages and in places we in the US would never dream of consuming it.  The whole world knows that France runs […]

The Slow Death of Political Correctness as People Push Back Out of Frustration

April 15, 2011


It is showing up most distinctly in Britain where the Prime Minister David Cameron has been outspoken about the torn fabric of British society due to mass migration and immigration.  Most Britons including the PM are not against immigration per se.  They are against unbridled massive influxes of foreign populations that have the look and […]

The Selling and Sellout of Prince Andrew – Where Need Meets Greed In Politics and Trade

March 9, 2011


Fergie is not the only one to have tried to sell access to Andrew.  She was unsuccessful when the British Government and its handmaiden, private industries including those  involved in arms sales have been.  In a very real sense, there may be those who will benefit from throwing a wrench into his ability to perform […]

Kate and Wills: Common Touch for Their Wedding a Tad Too Common?

January 21, 2011


It is remarkable that Kate and William have been sensitive to the economy and those suffering from its rigors.  As a result, they have opted for a car to transport Kate to the Abbey (also the symbolism in this is that she will not yet be royal) and for wedding guests to donate to their […]

Bristol Palin as Legitimate DWTS Finalist Backed by Brandy’s Partner

November 18, 2010


Before the competition began this week on Dancing with the Stars and he and Brandy Norwood  were eliminated, Maksim Chmerkovskiy spouted “party” line about the fairness of the outcome in including votes from viewers.  France24]  Considering he had tangled with one of the judges, this was not in character for Maksim.  For the show’s policy […]

Bad Times Deserve a Good Christmas So “Deck” the Dems Nov 2, Then the Halls!

October 27, 2010


Don’t forget to vote November 2.  While SamHenry tries to maintain a journalistic neutral position, this year in the face of election fraud, massive and destructive lies, it is less easy.  The decision is always yours but you must go to the polls and vote.  Then, turn your thoughts to the Holiday Season. For some […]

Surprise Reunion With “An Old Friend” From Great Grandmother’s Kitchen

October 26, 2010


My Great-grandmother died when I was about 12 years old.  Up until that time,  I used to love to spend the weekend with her out in a small western New York country village.  I loved the antimacassars on the chairs, the windy stairway to the cupola, the barn you could drive through, the chickens and […]

US At a Disadvantage in War on Terror: Lack of Religious Conviction and Knowledge

October 8, 2010


Islamic terrorists cry out to Allah as they launch an attack.  In the US, we are more like Patrick Henry – “I regret I have but one life to give for my country.”  Not only is democracy our “religion,” we have seeming exhibited less fervor in expressing our devotion to this cause than in the […]

The Future of THE Book – SamHenry vs Stephen King

October 7, 2010


Forbes and CNN both interviewed Stephen King recently.  In both interviews, the key moment for this former librarian and information scientist was when they asked him about the future of the book as we  have known it since the Chinese invented movable type.  They were asking the first major author to bypass traditional book publishing […]

Terrorist Warnings Be Damned.

October 6, 2010


High alert, red alert, the British are coming, man the torpedos and the barbarian is at the gate…. Obviously, down through history there have been warnings of extreme danger.  So it seems that to be free from them, one either has to travel to another habitable planet or find some refuge within one’s self.  This […]

Why Is Paris Hilton Free?

September 21, 2010


No story points more glaringly to the societal ills in this country than the sad saga of Paris Hilton. Having recently been arrested for possession, Paris found a friendly judgment today that meant a short period of community service and a light fine.  The woman was caught with cocaine and finally admitted it.  This not […]

CNN’s Advertising for Soledad O’Brien’s Latino in America Show Was Unprofessional

September 19, 2010


It seems as if CNN reporter Soledad O’Brien is in charge of reporting on minority America.  Her reporting is excellent and informative.  But this time around the advertising for her show on Hispanic Americans was a real turn off.  Part of the dialogue:  “Forget keeping up with the Joneses; You’d better keep up with the […]

September 9, 2010


CNN’s Legal Correspondent, Jeff Toobin said just this afternoon that the media played a large role in the whole Quran burning hype because they paid attention to the Florida Preacher*.  He said this at a point in the day when the Preacher had determined to drop plans for burning the Qurans and to fly to […]
